There was a lot of construction happening hopefully updating and upgrading the zoo. Is good for families with kids. Could be more information on the animals and an audio tour would improve on the zoo experience

After visiting Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast a few weeks ago, I was really disappointed with my visit to Taronga Zoo yesterday. The windows to the seal pool at the lower entry was a lovely Welcome. However, the zoo was far less impressive than...More

With a variety of outdoor attractions, the
sophisticated harbour suburb of Mosman has something
for everyone. Shoppers can stroll Military Road for
its unique offering of antiques, designer labels, and
hip restaurants and cafes. Nature lovers can take in
spectacular bushwalks like the Taronga to Balmoral
walk, while families can enjoy snorkeling in the
sheltered beaches of Balmoral Beach or scuba diving at

I think so but not 100% sure. There are seats either side of car and would appear to be space for a wheelchair in the middle.
